  • Cycles & Trends 2016: Business opportunities in Mexico Expand Minimize Sergio Rivas, INTSOK Oil & Gas Advisor Mexico, 27 September 2016

    The Mexican Government has made significant economic changes during the past two years with structural reforms, the instrumented economic policy has gained international recognition.
    Furthermore, in its last report in January 2016, the World Bank stated that the structural reforms implemented by Mexico have allowed him to have the best economic performance of Latin American countries during 2015, and expects the Mexican economy be one of the best positioned in the long-term.
    Of the eleven approved reforms, the energy reform is the one that has made significant progress during 2015, and is considered a watershed in the history of the Mexican oil industry, because with first contracts awarded to the private sector, ends the monopolized market exercised by Pemex for 75 years. With the first three rounds emerges a new competitive market; until now made up of 31 operators exploring and exploiting hydrocarbons in the country.
